Questions for Teachers and Leaders to Consider

in Planning for Differentiation

(An Introductory Session for Teachers, Key Personnel and School Leaders)

 

Differentiation has great potential to help develop both stronger students and stronger teachers. For that to happen, however, it's important for teachers and leaders to have a shared understanding of the intent of differentiation and to think about ways in which current teaching practices align with those recommended by differentiation as well as ways in which teachers might need to modify your teaching and in which leaders may need to modify their guidance and support as you move forward with differentiation in schools across Singapore. This session will propose six questions that are useful in helping participants think about both current strengths in providing responsive instruction and possible next steps as well.
